Terrific smokey aromas smothered in berries and cherries. Refined wildness. So floral and precise. Clear. Tiny berry fruit intensity and a lipstick like intensity. Woodland berry a forest aromas and a wonderful indescribable Alpine aromas. Just spectacular. The clarity is just amazing here. Palate is brilliant. Grippy and tanning but juicy and elegant. Nerds air but it’s still gentle but also commanding and what a fruit soak on the finish. Amazingly long finish. Switzerland continues to impress. I’ll be back. A hint of sweet raspberry jam on the nose but only a hint and so engaging. Adds so much. — 2 months ago

BFM (Brasserie des Franches-Montagnes)

Abbaye de Saint Bon Chien 2019

BFM = Brasserie Franches Montagne. This is the Flanders Red Ale. A sour ale.

Possibly the best beer I have ever had?
The nose is dried red apple + dried guava +
Tart fruit on the tongue with a finish of sweet malt and tart cherry juice.
A wonderful acid finish that to me is reminiscent of what you might find in a
